Postcard 66: Loch Coruisk, Skye


Travel ~ to make journeys of curiosity


One of several definitions for the word
'Travel'
in Johnson's Dictionary, 1755



These seals live on Loch Scavaig and guard the entrance to Loch Coruisk.
The loch has been described as a cauldron of water
in the heart of the Cuillin mountains.


This is the view of the Cuillin from Elgol.


And this is the approach to Loch Coruisk.

Here are the seals again.


Back at Elgol, where the journey ends...
...or begins

A strange thing happened to me today. I began to read 'A Mermaid's Tale' by Wendy Webb - and lo and behold, there was a poem, 'Loch Coruisk' about me. It was also about my husband, David. What a surprise.

Thank you, Wendy!
It is not often I am lost for words.

Wendy had reminded me earlier in the week that I had sent her a postcard from this wonderful spot last September.

Great photos and post. Skye looks wonderful, and wished I'd had more time to explore it when I was there. Seals look very camouflaged, and barnacley!
